This is prevention for the masses now. Not just the educated, the wealthy or those in the medical field. It is available and accessible for all of humanity.

r. Kelly Posner Gerstenhaber is a philanthropist and visionary scientist, whose work is saving lives in 45 nations on six continents. According to an Israeli government official, this work "is not only saving millions of lives it is literally changing the way we live our lives." The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention noted her work is” changing the paradigm in suicide risk assessment in the US and worldwide.” Jim Shelton, former U.S. deputy education secretary said, “Dr. Posner ’s work has the potential to keep our 64 million children in our schools safe.” The APA president noted her work “could be seen as really a watershed moment, like the introduction of antibiotics….” After being commissioned by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, a front page article in The New York Times called her work “one of the most profound changes of the past 16 years. The U.S. Department of Defense called it “nothing short of a miracle,” and “her effective model of improving the world will help propel us closer to a world without suicide.” Dr. Posner ’s work was noted in a recent keynote at the White House and during congressional hearings. Her scholarly work was included in the most important research in the history of the study of suicide. Named one of New York Magazine’s “Most Influential” people, she received the New York State Suicide Prevention Award; the most Distinguished Alumna of her graduate school over the past 50 years; and gave the invited presentation on tackling depression and suicide to the leaders of the EU. Dr. Posner Gerstenhaber is a longtime advocate of education reform, founding chairman of the board of Turnaround for Children and co-founder The Speyer Legacy School, with Jennifer Selandy, which focuses on high-achieving, low-income students.

We’re better than this, America is better than this. 9

s. McCray m o v e d to New York City in 1977, and landed a position with Redbook magazine. She spent most of the next decade in magazine publishing, working as a writer, editor, and marketing research analyst. Her deep commitment to social justice eventually led her to the nonprofit world. She quickly realized that every organization she worked with relied on government support to achieve their mission. This inspired her to take a position with the NYC Commission for Human Rights, where she could play a role in achieving long-term system change, which was her ultimate goal. Her work with the Commission transitioned to a position writing speeches for Mayor David Dinkins. It was while working for Mayor Dinkins that she met Bill de Blasio, whom she married in 1994. Ms. McCray later served as a speechwriter for State Comptroller Carl McCall and City Comptroller Bill Thompson. She also worked on the communications team at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn.

Mr. McDonald is a pioneer of social enterprise — the creation of revenue-generating businesses serving the greater good — and has provided over $250 million in earned income for The Doe Fund’s clients. The programs and businesses he has created serve more than 1,000 individuals each day, empowering them to become selfsufficient, productive members of society. Over 30 years, The Doe Fund has grown to a $50 million organization proven to address the underpinnings of society’s greatest challenges: recidivism, poverty, homelessness, and addiction.

a n n a h Storm is an awardwinning journalist and host of SportsCenter’s Face to Face on ESPN. Storm is a trailblazer in both the sports and media worlds, having paved the way as one of the first female sportscasters in the

industry. Storm is also the founder of the Hannah Storm Foundation (HSF), which raises awareness, provides educational information, and funds critical surgeries for children suffering from debilitating and disfiguring vascular birthmarks.

The foundation’s goal is to inspire individual potential and to promote an active and fulfilling life. Since its launch in 2008, HSF has sponsored close to 30 surgeries for children all over the world. HSF also funds the Hannah Storm Journalism Internship at Notre Dame, Storm’s alma mater. The internship provides opportunities for current Notre Dame undergraduate students so they can have the best chance at achieving their dreams.
